SHORT STORY FESTIVAL, SATURDAY 30th JUNE, 10.30 AM – 6 PM
At LCB Depot, Rutland St, Leicester, LE1 1RE
Join Leicester Writes for a wonderful celebration of all things small and wonderful. The day will kick off with a two-hour workshop on writing and editing short stories with writers, Divya Ghelani and Rupert Dastur.
The afternoon will be packed with author talks: award winning writers Rebecca Burns and CG Menon will be sharing their experience of putting their short story collection together, and Jon McGregor and Alison Moore will be in conversation with Mahsuda Snaith to discuss taking the leap from writing short stories to novels.
The evening will end in style with our Leicester Writes Short Story Prize anthology launch where we will be celebrating the talents of this year’s longlist.
